Develop an individual profile and plan your career

The workshop program supports postdoctoral researchers to sharpen and extend their individual academic profile and to successfully continue their careers in- and outside academia.

The workshops are offered for one or two days and will be held in English or German. The workshops take place alternately at Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, and the University of Duisburg-Essen with different topics.

Who can participate?

Postdoctoral researchers of all research fields of the three UA Ruhr Universities: Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University, University of Duisburg-Essen.

If you are already leading your own research group, hold a Junior Professorship, already hold a Habilitation or are shortly before finishing your Habilitation, we would like to recommend you to participate in our CoachingPLUS Program which is specifically designed for you.
